The Valley Caravan Gallery uses its profits to support those who have suffered the most in war-torn Afghanistan: women and children.
The new Berkeley Springs business is located on U.S. 522 South. It features hand-knotted rugs from all over Asia, antiques, tapestries, furniture, exotic jewelry, shawls and handcrafted items from other countries.
Store owner Fahima Vorgetts opened Valley Caravan Gallery a few weeks ago. Born in Afghanistan, Vorgetts left the country in her early 20s.
She still goes back a few times a year to dig wells, build schools, or do whatever is needed in the small rural communities.
Vorgetts is the director of Women for Afghan Women, which operates under the Afghan Women's Fund.
